Iowa running back Barkley Hill was arrested on Nov. 24 for operating while intoxicated.

The freshman from Denver, Iowa, was charged at 1:45 a.m. in Black Hawk County with first-offense OWI; he will be suspended next season for at least one game.

“I was disappointed to hear of the charges against Barkley,” head coach Kirk Ferentz said. “Barkley will face a minimum one-game suspension, as well as other consequences within the program.”

Hill missed the 2012 season after tearing his ACL in fall practice. He would likely enter next season behind Mark Weisman, Damon Bullock, and Greg Garmon on Iowa’s backfield depth chart.

His arrest came the morning after Iowa’s season ended with a 13-7 loss to Nebraska in Kinnick Stadium. The Hawkeyes finished 4-8 on the season.
